People I Hate Really Need To Stop Doing Cute Things. You Hear Me, Megan Fox?!

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | November 7, 2012 | Comments ()


Did we have a good Election Night, my dears? If not, my condolences and I hope you had vats of something (booze, ice cream, meths) in which to drown your sorrows. Me, well, both my guy and my gay peeps won, so I'm feeling pretty perky. I am saddened, however, to hear that Diane Sawyer is denying that she was five sheets to the wind last night. Her slurs sustained me. She's claiming she was just tired. Okay, Diane, okay. (CB)

I was planning to link this bit o' news today anyway, but a conversation has sparked up over on the Pajiba facebook page about whether it's okay that a domestic abuse charity has asked folks to donate their copies of "50 Shades Of Grey" so the pages can be used as toilet paper. Is it ever okay to defile a book? Is 50 Shades actually damning to the female psyche or is it merely escapist fun? Wouldn't the sharp edges of a Random House standard-issue page be uncomfy on your bum? (Time)

Wired has an exhaustive list of cinema's weirdest/quaintest movie computers. I'm just delighted to see EMERAC included. (Wired)

So they've nailed down a Harry Potter director for the upcoming (ill-advised) Tarzan film and are now looking for some shirtless hunk to play the lead. Tom Hardy's on the list and I think we all know he's way too good for this project. But I don't object to Charlie Hunnam's name being bandied about. (FSR)

Another good choice for Tarzan is Meryl Streep's son-in-law and former presidential Vampire Hunter, Benjamin Walker. Fortunately for Ben, he's just signed on to an HBO pilot about the Cold War. Here's hoping for the political intrigue of "Homeland" meets the fashionable sideburns of "Mad Men." (Deadline)

Walker reportedly snatched that lead role from Aaron Paul. Speaking of everyone's favorite meth cook, did you know they're making a "Breaking Bad" porn parody? Did you know that you can watch the trailed if you follow this link? Ooooo, Jesse Pinkman's a lady! (Breaking Bad XXX)

I hope all you East Coasters are safe from the Nor'easter that's headed your way. Athena is it? If, however, civilization as we know it collapses and it comes to a zombie apocalypse, here are some familiar images to get you through the bites nights. (LS)

Splitsider has a fantastic list of the 50 top comedy writer/directors and their next projects. The list is alphabetical so you don't have to be huffy about the order. It's just a totally fun, inoffensive and informative li-AHHH NO LENA DUNHAM. LOOK AWAY, JEZZER. (Splitsider)

Can we get a standing ovation for Tammy Baldwin? (GOOD )

I'd never wear these Mutant Enemy necklaces cause I think they're sort of dumb looking, but the Whedonite in me had to link them. (TMS)

Also, I'm not thrilled to see which "Doctor Who" villain will feature in Neil Gaiman's upcoming episode. I think they're among the most boring options. But, in Gaiman we trust, right? (Boing Boing)

Finally, Megan Fox did a pretty cute commercial for Acer. The opening film pitch bit is the best part, but the whole thing is pretty adorable. Damnit, Megan. My hate for you was so savory. (via io9)

    I've never had an issue with Megan Fox and have always felt she got misjudged. When Transformers 2 came out, it was pretty much panned by everyone. Then both Megan Fox and Shia LaBaeiouyf came out publicly and said, "Yeah, we kinda fucked the dog on that one. Sorry," and people FLIPPED OUT. "HOMG UNGRATEFUL FEEDING HAND BITERS, YOU SHOULD NEVER WORK AGAIN!" You know, a shitty job is a shitty job, and I've said some things about past employers that made Megan's and Shia's complaints look like love sonnets, so cut them a little slack. You hated the movie too.

    Megan's biggest problem was not being articulate enough to express her feelings in a non-dumb way when she talked about the horrors of working with Michael Bay. Her instincts were correct, she just Godwined herself in the process because she's really not the book-learnin' type. She seems really happy in her marriage, and she seems to want to play against type and choose different kinds of film roles and not just be movie cheesecake bimbo fodder, so good on her. I wish her and her toe-thumbs every success.

    Always wondered if Whedon got the name from the Yes lyric from And You and I:

    "There'll be no mutant enemy we shall certify;
    Political ends, as sad remains, will die."

  • x

    Lurve the plumper dude holding the handshake with Megan for too long

  • BendinIntheWind

    I'll take any excuse to use that Charlie Hunnam photo... dear god, it gives me life.

  • Green Lantern

    Also, I’m not thrilled to see which “Doctor Who” villain will feature in
    Neil Gaiman’s upcoming episode. I think they’re among the most boring

    Bite yer tounge, Joanna! Cybermen have always been my favorites. I find them even creepier than Daleks...for they were once HUMAN!

  • Maguita NYC

    I am very sorry for adding to your already wonderful list of links of interests today, but this should ABSOLUTELY be highlighted. It starts with...

    "I know I was supposed to throw a picture of Donald Trump up there, but would you rather look at a picture of a charred dingle stuck on a dog's hairy asshole, or would you rather look at a picture of a gold digging Slovenian flower? No, Melania Trump isn't trying to seduce you. Melania is pulled so tight that she can't open her eye holes all the way, and she's always hazy in the brain from constantly inhaling the toxic hot air that Trump farts from his pie hole."

    Donald Trump's ire at Brian William's:"Donald Trump has driven past the last exit to relevance..." By one spot on Michael K.

  • Jen

    Anything Michael K writes should be highlighted. He is genius in every way, funniest gossip blogger ever.

  • Maguita NYC

    He does get on my nerves at times (too much of a good ridiculing-snarking thing and such), but he has moments of absolute genius with specific wording regarding assholes on their way to irrelevance.

  • thatgirl

    Nope, Cybermen are the most terrifying recurring Whovian evil. Loss of self, body horror, excruciating pain? Daleks just exterminate you, Angels kill you nicely, and it's more sad than scary. But Cybermen take who you are, everything about you, and get rid of it. Unless it doesn't entirely work, in which case you are stuck in a horrifying limbo.

  • Green Lantern

    YES! Exactly.

  • Tinkerville

    Agreed. I'm completely ecstatic over the possibility that we might finally have a great Cybermen episode. I think the reason people think they're pushovers is because they've been handled very badly in their last few episodes, but they have the potential to be amazing. They're my favorite Who villains by far.

  • BlackRabbit

    Indeed. Daleks get alll the love. I still love Tomb of the Cybermen. "They shall never pass Toberman. The door is closed."

  • Tinkerville

    I like Megan Fox. There. I said it.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I like the idea of Megan Fox, but not the execution.
    I don't know what that means, but it made sense while it was gestating in my brain. WHAT, I CAN'T GIVE BIRTH TO MALFORMED IDEAS?! Fucking fascists!

  • HMDK

    I have nothing against her. It's just... she's there. Not really acting, just being generically pretty. When infantile Bay wants boom, he blows boring shit up. When he wants boobs, he turns to Fox. With the same boring result. I DO however remember hearing from two different people that she was great in a certain movie, but for the fuck of me I can't remember it's name. Any help?

  • HMDK

    Yes. You certainly did. Why you're so proud and defiant about it, is still a conundrum.

  • Groundloop

    I hope Fox removed the elastic bands from the lobsters claws before releasing them into the ocean. Otherwise, that's a pretty cruel joke to play on a crustacean.

  • ClaireB

    Thank you.

  • HMDK

    That's a supposedly good commercial? Okay.. it ain't APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD, but...

  • AmandaK

    AARGH. I was really looking forward to Aaron Paul getting a series on HBO. How am I supposed to get my weekly Aaron Paul fix now after Breaking Bad finishes??

  • lowercase_ryan

    I got Lena Dunham for Jezzer in the gift exchange. True story. He hate me now.

  • I'm on an Acer laptop right now. It has frozen and had to be rebooted at least 20 times today.

  • Archie Leach

    Sure beats a macintosh catching on fire.

  • I have an iBook from 2004 that works perfectly apart from it can't handle the internet because there's no way to get updated browsers and flash. .

  • Archie Leach

    Better than a macintosh catching on fire.

  • Stephen Nein

    I was going to say Acer is shit, but you said it for me.

    "Wouldn’t the sharp edges of a Random House standard-issue page be uncomfy on your bum?"

    Comfort would be the least of my worries. What about the paper cuts?!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Wipe, don't scrape.

  • BWeaves

    Ever wipe your hand on a piece of paper and accidentally get the edge instead. I see paper cuts galore.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    No. I usually use towels for that.

  • $27019454

    I don't mind Charlie Hunnam's anything being bandied about, frankly.

    Also, making such a much about 50 Shades without tongue in cheek is giving it too much importance. This kind of umbrage-fueled action simply makes it more "more." Which is stupid because... it's stupid.
